Программа Международной выставки включала ряд других мероприятий – посещение Национального Музея Китая, Академии искусства и дизайна, Школы Ци Байши, проведение творческих встреч и мастер-классов.

В один из дней участники выставки отправились к Великой Китайской Стене – не только увидеть одно из чудес света, но и запечатлеть его на своих картинах. По задумке организаторов, следующей станет выставка именно этих работ, которые были созданы художниками разных стран в тот апрельский день 2013 года на Великой Китайской Стене.

Он внес выдающийся вклад в дело неправительственной дипломатии».
